Joseph Kony wasn't the first.
Robert Mugabe was.
But nobody cared
Even as he destroyed my home
And forced me to move.
Nobody noticed.
Mugabe was the first
To make child soldiers kill,
To print money,
To lie and cheat people,
To starve for votes.
But nobody saw what he did.
No one put it on the internet,
Or tried to stop or help.
So why start with Kony?
What makes Uganda special?
Why didn't anyone help Zimbabwe?
That confuses me.

It's so messed up.

Kony had better publicity than Mugabe. Or maybe the other way around. Mugabe could hide his hurtful actions from the rest of the world better.
